crashing issue while playing games

My friend is having issues where his computer would crash while playing video games. It would happen very rarely, but when it did, 
his whole screen would freeze, as would the mouse, and ctrl + alt + del did nothing. He would have to hold the power button down
 to restart.
He tested the memory with no issues and so decided to upgrade his video card (it was like 6+ years old anyways) as well as the
 PSU in his computer, yet he is still having crash issues. It seems to be happening more often now, but the majority of crashes,
 not all, happen in 1 game (Dishonored). It feel like this might be a power/mobo issue, but can't tell. Any help would be appreciated.A

Thank you for your willingness to help people Natalie Green but can I ask that you do not start threads looking for solutions to other members computer issues, it may lead to confusion as to what guidance has been offered by whom and can ultimately lead to mistakes being made by the person that you are trying to help.


Thank you for your understanding.
